If there’s one thing Keith Urban loves it’s seeing young people learning guitar.
He’s shown this before by inviting fans on stage to perform with him during concerts, and he showed it again last month when he decided to do something extra special for one aspiring guitarist.
Urban was playing the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey, on August 26, when he spotted a young fan, 12-year-old Rocco Alessandro, in the audience holding a bright-green sign above his head.
The sign read, “Hi Mr Keith, I’m just learning to play !!!guitar!!”.
Without skipping a beat, Keith Urban removed his guitar, wiped it down and signed it.
He then handed it over to the surely surprised Rocco, grabbed another guitar, and kept right on playing.
Rocco said later that he had actually hoped the singer would gift him a guitar after seeing the singer do the same thing for other young fans.
“The night before I couldn’t sleep because I was trying to figure out what to write on my sign,” he told the Delaware State News afterward.
